Fall always was my favorite season!

Here is an email we received today:

Hi, hows it going? Question for you. How would you all like some company
from Oct. 5 thru Oct 26. Deb was going to buy me a ticket but she called Uncle Steve and he got me a ticket using his frequent flier miles for Oct. 5 Should arrive on
XXX Airlines in SEA at 8:40 P.M. Does this sound O.K. Talk to you later. Didn't
want to try your new phone # since it was going to change today.
Lots of Love, Kisses and Hugs to all. Mom!

The Mom in question is actually P-Daddy's, but I retain the happy privilege of being one of the few percent of the population who actually adores her MIL. GmaRose has never met D, and I know P-Daddy and GmaRose have to be thrilled about that first meeting; I know I certainly am. She had originally planned to come out to Washington just as we first moved here, to stay for D's birth and babymoon, but she had to have open heart surgery. As a result she missed the birth altogether, and I know this was a huge disappointment.

P-Daddy's actually so excited about it that he immediately said "I'm going to have to put in for some time off!" That takes some motivation.

It's been over a year since we had family in town, and when my parents came we'd only been in this house for two weeks. We had no established life to show off, nowhere to really take them because we didn't know the area. Now, we have all that in place and I think it's going to be a lot of fun.


  1. YEAAAAAAAAAAA! I'm so happy for P-daddy (and everyone else) that she's finally coming to visit.

  2. WHOO HOO! I am so excited for you and the rest of the fam. What fun. Help for ~L~ for 3 weeks!!!!!

  3. Gma Rose ROCKS!!!! Give her lovin' from me!
